Next Tuesday, August 31st at 1:00 p.m., Melissa’s office and the New York Academy of Medicine (NYAM) are hosting a free luncheon for older adults in East Harlem at 1216 Fifth Avenue (@103rd Street). At the luncheon, attendees will discuss how the neighborhood should be improved and will watch the premiere of a short film about seniors in East Harlem.
This event is part of the Age Improvement District initiative, which was launched as a pilot program by our office and NYAM last year. The program aims to establish a model in New York City which will soon be launched in other neighborhoods that involves engaging seniors at a local level to identify ways in which their neighborhoods can become more age-friendly, including ensuring equal access to local resources, improving security in the neighborhood, ensuring that our public transportation system serves seniors adequately, and repairing our streets and sidewalks.
Please call 212-822-7284 to RSVP for this event.
